THE DECREE concluded with
"during this week all Foresters '
will preach the gospel of the out-
doors from roof tops and they will
be known by their plaid shirts." -
Foresters were driven to this
drastic step by a fear that Paul :
would think they have succumb-
ed to the soft living of their fel-
low students, and there is a need
for a revival of the old ways. }
They fear that Foresters have
lost the true outdoor spirit of their
predecessors and Paul wouldn't be
able to tell the Foresters from the 0 p-
Lit School students. . .
IF PAUL FINDS this is the case,
then they have doubts he will ap-

Dr. Franz Polgar, world renown
ed hypnotist and mind reader, has
issued a challenge to University
students which may result in in-
creased funds for the University
Fresh Air Camp.
The battle of the wits will begin
at 8:15 p.m. Friday in Hill Audi-
torium when Dr. Polgar will pre-
sent his "Fun with the Mind"
show, sponsored by the South
Quad Council that they may hide
his check for the performance
somewhere in the audience.
If he cannot find it while be-
ing guided by "thought impul-
ses" from a member of the audi-
ence, he will forfeit his check
and turn it over the Fresh Air
Camp, to which all proceeds
from the show will be given.
Polgar demonstrated his mind
reading ability to an audience at
the Detroit Town Hall Forum re-
cently in a similar stunt.
AN AUDIENCE member hid the
check under the hat of a woman
seated in the center of approxi-
mately 2,000 persons in the hall.
Polgar asked for a volunteer
known to the audience to give
him mental directions. It took
him four minutes to find the
woman and locate the check.
A graduate of Budapest Univer-
sity, Polgar credits his memory
and mind reading powers to dis-

The challenge was answered
mapy times until someone called
